I sat down to watch Bokeh and within 30 minutes, I was moved to pause proceedings so I could decide whether moving forward with the movie would be worth it. I simply had to do this because I was failing to find the two main characters played by Maika monroe and Matt O’Leary particularly interesting; at least not interesting enough for me to want to spend more time with them.
Written and directed by Geoffrey Orthwein and Andrew Sullivan, I’d hoped that the story would be just a little more gripping. You know, something akin to the likes of Z For Zachariah (2015), a movie with a vaguely similar plot. Since that wasn’t the case and what was happening was proving disappointing along with a moment or two when my disbelief could not be completely suspended; at approximately 24 minutes in, I aborted.
Did I quit too early? Have you watched or tried to watch Bokeh? Share your experience in the comments below.
Lastly, in terms of what I actually liked about the one third of Bokeh that I saw… I love the name Maika and I want to visit Iceland in the future.. That’s about it.
Until next time…
Happy Film Loving
